BAM secures role on £50M Cardiff University project

WCN Editorial Team 7 Apr 2017 EUROPE BUILDINGS

BAM has been appointed as the preferred bidder to deliver pre-construction services for a £50M building at Cardiff University.

The building, named Centre for Student Life, has been designed by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios. The facility will serve as a central hub for student support services featuring modern social learning spaces and a 550-seat lecture theatre.

Prof. Amanda Coffey, pro vice-chancellor for student experience and academic standards, said: “The Centre is part of an ongoing £600M investment in our campus, including £260M to provide world leading facilities for our students.”

BAM construction director Craig Allen said: “Our appointment reflects the strength of the relationship we forged with Cardiff University working with them on the Hadyn Ellis and CUBRIC (Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre) buildings. It also reflects BAM’s ability to meet the emphasis on the quality and buildability for what is a complex scheme.”

Work on the project is expected to commence later in 2017 and be concluded in the 2019/20 academic year.
